Extremists in Baghouz, north-east Syria, gave themselves up to US-backed forces after the whinging terror group called on its supporters to unleash attacks in Europe for the “holocaust” it has suffered.
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) official Mustafa Bali said that 1,500 to 2,000 ISIS fighters and their families surrendered en masse today.
"Once our forces confirm that everyone who wants to surrender has done so ... the clashes will resume," he said.
He added that the defeat of the terror group was very near.
A Reuters journalist saw hundreds of people surrendering to the SDF, which launched its final attack to capture Baghouz on Sunday.
The group has been backed by US-led international coalition air strikes and after weeks of siege.
Baghouz is the last shred of territory held by the jihadists who have been driven from roughly one third of Iraq and Syria over the past four years.
